Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.
Today we are very excited to reveal something that has been sitting idle in our "vault" for quite some time now. It is the Curtiss-Wright P-40E Kittyhawk!
The P-40 was a single-seat, all-metal fighter/ground-attack plane that was developed by the American, Curtiss-Wright Corporation. Its design was nothing more than an updated version of the earlier, Curtiss P-36 Hawk. Armed with 6x .50 M2 Browning machine guns, the P-40 saw extensive use 28 different air forces, across a host of different battlefields. Known to the British as the "Kittyhawk", the P-40 would play a critical role in North Africa, providing close air support. Nearly 14,000 P-40s were built by the time production ceased in November of 1944. The P-40E Kittyhawk was originally made by Rad and Lobo, and Stubbfan. Finishing touches were done by Herc, and exported by Stubbfan.
